What is cystic fibrosis?
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) primarily affects the lungs and digestive system because of a malfunction in the exocrine system that’s responsible for producing saliva, sweat, tears and mucus. There is currently no cure.
People with CF develop an abnormal amount of excessively thick and sticky mucus within the lungs, airways and the digestive system. This causes impairment of the digestive functions of the pancreas and traps bacteria in the lungs resulting in recurrent infections, leading to irreversible damage. Lung failure is the major cause of death for someone with CF.
From birth, a person with CF undergoes constant medical treatments and physiotherapy.
1 in 2,500 babies are born with CF and there is currently no cure.
*Please use all headbands and clips with adult supervision. DO NOT leave your child unattended while wearing any headband or clip as some may contain small parts which maybe pulled off and cause choking. Do not let your child nap wearing hair accessories.
